History[edit]

Trovebox was initially started by Jaisen Mathai as a Kickstarter project[1] and launched in December 2011.[2] Trovebox was originally known as OpenPhoto until being rebranded in January 2013.[3]

Trovebox received funding from the Shuttleworth Foundation.[4]

On January 16, 2015 the company announced[5] that they would be shutting down on March 31, 2015.

Features[edit]

Trovebox consists of a platform API,[6] web application, iOS application[7][8] and Android application.[9] A unique feature of Trovebox is the ability to connect to various cloud storage services including Dropbox, Box, Amazon S3, Dreamhost Dreamobjects and Trovebox's own storage.

Trovebox's server-side, Android app, and iOS client source code is available on GitHub under the Apache open source license for users who prefer to install Trovebox themselves.[10]
